Community OOC activities list
Looking for something fun to do?
Without the efforts of our Publicity Team, we don't bring in new members, can't expand our fleet or launch new ships, and have difficulty maintaining the fleet size. You can join this team to help us find and recruit new members. No experience required, just a willingness to help out. We have lots of little tasks that can be done in just 15 minutes to help bring in new people.
Community News Team
Our Community News plays a vital role in keeping our members informed, showing prospective members that we're active, and keeping our site fresh for search engine rankings. Members of this team draft one post a month for the news, which can include interviewing members of the fleet, writing about interesting content on the wiki or forums, or finding interesting science and Trek news to share with the fleet.
The (Image) Collective
This team helps our members create great-looking character images, design new ship banners and logos, and keep our wiki and website fresh with interesting graphics. If you have any skills in graphic design, this is the team for you.
Department of Veterans Affairs
Long-term members can sometimes experience burn-out, and difficulty reintegrating after a Leave of Absence. This team discusses ways to ease the transition back into the group, smooth issues with our disciplinary processes, and make our membership rules more fair.
Every few months, our Podcasts Team creates and releases a podcast with interesting interviews with members around the fleet, and insight into the news that makes up our community. If you have experience creating podcasts, or would like to learn how, join this team.
Community History Team
If you have an interest in either our history as a group, or general Trek history, you might want to check out the Timeline Projects, which are intended to catalog our In Character, and Out of Character group history, including our "Captains Genealogy," showing the "parentage" of each captain in the fleet, all the way back to the start of our group. Open to all, you just need a willingness to help out with research and organization.
Wiki Operations Team
The Wiki Operations Team helps keep the wiki updated (such as on the Face List, crew history pages, various duty post sections, etc.) and harness the enthusiasm of frequent wiki contributors. If you're a regular contributor to areas of the wiki beyond your character profiles, this team can help build your skills and direct you to areas that need help.
Top Sims Contest
Help reward great simmers on your vessel by submitting the best you've read each month to the Top Sims Contest. A panel of judges – one from each ship – will vote on the best every two weeks, and every quarter the group members will pick a sim to proceed to the final round at the end of the year. The final round is also judged by the general membership, and the winning sim is crowned the Top Sim of that year, and presented an award at the yearly ceremony. Submitting a sim is incredibly simple: Just copy and paste the chosen sim into a new thread in the Top Sims Contest forum on the message boards.
Featured Bio Contest
Show off your character development and wiki coding skills by bringing your character profile up to date, and completing it with medical records, great sims, and more. Or, nominate your crewmates who have great character profiles on the wiki. A panel of judges picks a winner each month.
Almost every duty post has a forum where you can talk with other members who play the same role, help expand our wiki resources for people in your role, and even do some simming with other members of your duty post.
Guilds bring together members who play similar characters, or share an OOC bond. We have four guilds current: the Lambda Alliance (for LGBT players and their characters), the Readers Guild (for those who play telepathic and empathic characters), the Species Guild (for discussion of common and uncommon species), and the Characters Guild (for discussion of building and enriching characters).
Events & Activities
We have all-fleet chats once a month, and some ships also organize their own ship chats as well. You can join in, and even help organize a special chat if you're so inclined. Members of the fleet also hang around the chatroom on a daily basis, and you can pop in to say hello.
Free-form simming (FFS) sites are areas in which all our members are welcome to sim, on a part-time basis, in an unstructured environment. The purpose is to give players a chance to interact with other players from across the fleet, and also create new characters which they might not have had the opportunity to play on their primary vessel.
Build your character profiles, add to your ship's historical profile, and find resources to enrich your simming.
Meet other members of the fleet and discuss various fleet activities. » Where to go: Forums.
Our Memory Book is a way for the real people who are a part of our community to leave a little of themselves behind by telling their own story. Participating is easy: Just follow the simple instructions to create a template page of the Memory Book, and fill in as much or as little information as you want.
Academy Training (Operations) Team
If you're a Lieutenant Commander, we need your help on the training team! Keeping up with regular training sessions requires a lot of enthusiastic members who can participate in at least one training group a month.
